READ: Reading Education Assistance Dogs

Danny is a "listening dog". He's part of the animal assistance program READ: Reading Education Assistance Dogs. Danny doesn't laugh, he doesn't judge, he doesn't criticize or correct pronunciation; he builds self-esteem in children by encouraging them to read aloud when they otherwise might not have the confidence to do so. Alas, sometimes Danny will nod off during story time, but his owner Tom Nevett tells children that Danny is dreaming about their story.
